Great gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Great low cut glove. I found them to fit my hands really well and they have a nice pre-curve plus stretch over the back of the hand that makes them comfortable to grip tools with. The inside is warm and soft and they have kept my hands completely dry and warm.

Feeling safe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

After having some traditional gortex liner gloves soak through and freeze on me I decided it was time for a change. I was directed towards this glove. First time climbing was on a massive multi pitch with running water on a 10 degree day. I was trying hard to keep my leader warmed up and motivated. I started to get scared with I felt water running down my glove and straight down my arm. I was haunted by my previous experience.
This glove shook it off never got wet and kept me warm. So thrilled to have these on my hands and on my harness. If you are on the fence? don't be. Spend the money.

A bit disappointing. Had these out ice climbing in 20 F temp. Cold hands ensued. Wet hands later ensued. Lacerations through leather finger tips also ensued. I would not recommend these for temps below 20 F. I did receive these s as A sample tho from a rep? So perhaps they weren't up to quality check. I had high hopes for these as they fit really well. In addition, they are nimble and provide good dexterity, just weren't very durable. Give em a go in warmer drier temps only.

Then the gloves you have do not have Q.Shield... and that makes a difference.

Responded on

They had Qshield label on the glove. Overall a crap glove as evident perhaps by their discontinuation by the manufacturer.

Great Glove; would recommend it

I'm a beginning Ice Climber and just spent 2 days on waterfall ice learning the skilz.These were my goto gloves for the ascent. They seemed to function just fine, grip was excellent dry or wet, but my hands sweat a little bit in them and didn't breath like I thought they would. It was around 18-30degF in Ouray, CO at the time. I really like the gauntlet and the "pull-tabs" built into the wrist made donning the gloves very quick for under cuff wear. The velcro wrist closure was adequate as well. I would have liked to compare these (on the ice) to OR Alibi II, because the Alibis felt slightly better in the store, but were quite a bit more expensive. Oh, the Hydra's seemed to provide decent protection from banging the backside of my hands up on the ice. I did wear a pair of super-thin liners on a couple of laps and although the "squeeze" was a little less tiring with the thin glove, I noticed my hands got banged up a tiny bit more. Of course, I'm a novice...but that didn't have anything to do with it, right?
